Book to Movie Review: World Without End

Ken Follett's The Pillars of the Earth and World Without End are two of my all-time favorite books.  Last year, I fell in love with The Pillars of the Earth miniseries and was beyond thrilled when I heard that World Without End was also being made into a miniseries.  World Without End was my favorite book between the two: I loved the love story and the inclusion of the black plague.   

My husband is also a Follett fan and we watched this series together.  I really enjoyed the World Without End miniseries, and I'm really glad I watched it, but I thought that The Pillars of the Earth miniseries was better.  World Without End strayed too far from the book (why they felt the need to change an already-perfect plot is beyond me) and I did not always agree with the changes that were made.  So much death!  Sex!  Back-stabbing! 

I still highly recommend the World Without End miniseries, as it's a great story acted out by an oustanding cast with great acting.  Bottom line: World Without End is my favorite Follett book but The Pillars of the Earth had a better screen adaptation.  




  1. I love these two books too! I saw The Pillars of the Earth miniseries like 2 years ago and it was fun. It did stray from the book a bit, but nearly all tv/movies do that. I look forward to seeing World Without End series.

  2. This article is trully well-written.There are a lot of interesting things to take into consideration. well done!
